A fight and a friendship, and why it matters. Also, 7 other things worth knowing today.
Kinda sounds like family…. Fight, fight, fight, never give up and then…just before the last punch ….think…….how far do we need to go……….we are family, we are the same……..we are different….but more in common than not…….
I’m just a little confused on the jailbreak. “108 inmates escaped” but “112 inmates recaptured”? Huh? Where did the extra 4 who were “recaptured” come from?
On the Ali-Forman issue, I’m more verbal. I suggest we “agree to disagree”. If the other doesn’t go along with this, I walk away.
Both winning - and losing gracefully - are indicators of integrity. I wish our politicians had some.
Bill, great writing about the fight. Truly makes you think!
Don't get me started.....
Boxing is a sport, albiet a brutal one. Do athletes truly hate each other, or is the trash talk game hype? Also first PPV was 1981, according to Google.
Your fight story was meaningful, read it out loud to my partner. That fight and boxing in general was not on my radar. But it is now.
Love this! I, too, was 4 years old. Did we really have pay-per-view back then?
Bill, Your article today got me thinking about the special relationship between Joe Louis and Max Schmeling. There are numerous documentaries and articles on them.
This link is related to today's theme around friendship but other articles go more deeply into the the courage, grace and generosity shown by them. Truly inspiring!
Several metaphors come to mind when reading todays story. Thanks for another great issue.
